Grandmother's Green Leaf Tea Cup & Saucer

I'm playing again with "The Print Shop" and "iPhotos" software programs on my Apple MAC laptop.  I took a plain photo and added special effects and a headline.  And - surprise - I was able to save it to my desktop and insert into my blog.  

Here's a sightly different view with no special effects.  Isn't the green leaf pattern pretty?  I remember my Mother displaying this teacup (passed down from paternal Grandmother).  My Grandmother passed down several sets and I will be sharing those with you in future posts.

Here's the legend on the back:
Bone China
English Castle
Made in Staffordshire

The green clear glass pitcher was hand blown in Yorktown, VA.  The little tea bag holder and spoon have the prettiest roses painted on them.  That's a broken robin (?) egg I found outside and an acorn that I thought was pretty too.   More teacups to come....

  1. I too love to play around with pictures, I simply love collages and love arranging the images and modifying them, still preserving their realistic feel.
    Your photographs here, as well as the subject are lovely.;)
    Thank you so much for your recent visit and your very kind words, I appreciate them very much.;)
    Have a lovely weekend,

  2. Isn't it fun to play with the camera software. I could do that all day long.

    Nice job, keep practicing.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  3. The teacup set looks so pretty on the matching colour doily
